Here's the instruction how to do it from this forum. Forgot who sent this but seems working fine.
Installing IBM Director Agent 5.20:
1-Copy IBM Director Agent installation files to /tmp directry on the ESX host
2-If there's an RSA II card in the server, go to /tmp/IBM-Director-Agent/1-RSAII-Daemon. If not, go to step 8
3-Launch this command to get full access on the files:chmod 777 *
4-Launch this command: rpm -ivh *.rpm
5-Go to /tmp/IBM-Director-Agent/2-USBASM-Driver
6-Launch this command to get full access on the files:chmod 777 *
7-Launch this command: rpm -ivh ibmusbasm-1.33-2.i386.rpm
8-Go to /tmp/IBM-Director-Agent/3-IBM-Director-Agent
9-Launch this command to get full access on the files:chmod 777 *
10-Launch this command: tar -xvf dir5.20_agent_linux.tar
11-Go to /tmp/IBM-Director-Agent/3-IBM-Director-Agent/FILES
12-Launch this command: ./dir5.20_agent_linux.sh
13-At this step, you may either restart the host or launch this command: /opt/ibm/director/bin/twgstart

Thank you so much for the response! I saw that post, but I guess my biggest question is, how do I give it all the trap information? When I run the HP SIM agent install as an example, it asks me for the trap/destination info during the install process, but this IBM agent doesn't ask me anything.
If I modify the snmpd.conf file to have all the settings I need, will the IBM Director Agent just pick those settings up maybe? I have the ESX Host added to the IBM Directir server and it's reporting reboots just fine, but from what I gather, there's no real way to test traps like you can with Open Manage and SIM by just removing a drive / redundnat p/s?
